Design Director

About Me

I’m an associate creative director living and working in Oregon and Washington State. For the past 20 years I’ve done some sort of graphic design, art direction, interactive design, motion graphics, photography, video and music production.

My work is strongly grounded in narrative and driven by the belief that the best designs provide simple solutions for complicated problems. I love doing good work that helps good people love their work. I’m a people person who prefers working side-by-side with clients and leading my teams by example. I’m also an instructor at the Pacific Northwest College of Art.

In my spare time I’m in the mountains. I’ve toured the country in bands since I was 16 years old. My best friend is a Boston Terrier named Matilda.
